    Boy these “scientists” are dumb. Can’t they even read each others papers, especially the ones on Antarctic Volcanoes.
    All they have to do is Google, “Antarctic Volcanoes”, and read about the 90 odd active volcanoes and geothermal hot spots, under the West Antarctic ice sheet, which is where the Thwaites Glacier is.

    If this ice is so damn unstable, why is there no long-term acceleration signal in the global mean sea level?

    P.S. Expedition Transportation provided by fossil fuels (what else?)

    Nice narrative, but they wait to the end to shoot themselves in the foot with the following:

    ” unless there’s some amazing change where we manage to remove greenhouse gases from the atmosphere”.

    What a waste of public money

    So they cannot get close to the glacier because the ocean is FROZEN! What nit-wits. Ice shelves are already in the ocean so their breaking off will have no effect on sea level.

    I used to listen to PRI’s The World on my local NPR station. I also watched ABC News and CNN…

    Then about a decade ago I became disillusioned and the veil was lifted. Once it comes off, that’s it.

    Is Thwaites not floating ice and therefore irrelevant to sea level?

  7. Starley R Shelton says:

    “The bedrock underneath much of the glacier slopes down toward the continent’s interior, meaning if the ice starts to retreat, there’s little to stop it. ”

    That is from your linked article Tony. If the bedrock slopes inland, would that mean that if the ice broke loose from the ground surface it would slide inland, not out to sea. Thus DECREASING the risk of sea level rise, not increasing. And the portion of the ice beyond the shoreline would be ocean ice so have no impact on rise either.

    It does not seem to make sense. They are saying the land ice would move inland and we know sea ice does not increase sea level. So from where would the threat originate?

    I remember just a couple years ago when Lake Mead was doomed because Climate Change was drying up the Colorado River…
